National Take Back Day Is Tomorrow
The OC Health Care Agency encourages community members to drop off expired, unused or unwanted prescription medications on National Take Back Day, Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at numerous locations throughout Orange County.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. The National Take Back Event supports our commitment to the safety and health of our local community, encouraging the public to remove unneeded medications from homes as a measure to prevent medication misuse and opioid addiction from ever starting.
The Take Back Day event helps to draw attention to this ongoing issue and reminds us that together we can keep our community safe. To locate a Take Back drop-off site near you, please visit the Drug Enforcement Administration’s website at DEATakeback.com or call 800-882-9539. Drop-off service is free and anonymous.
